Netflix has ordered an anime series about Norse mythology from Zack Snyder because when you think an anime about Norse gods, you think that dude that made Batman kill people.
Joining Snyder on the project is Jay Oliva, who will serve as showrunner and director. Oliva worked as a storyboard artist on movies including Deadpool, Wonder Woman, and Thor: Ragnarok. He’s no stranger to Snyder either, having collaborated with him on Justice League, Batman v Superman, 300, and Man of Steel.
“Zack Snyder’s innovation in visual storytelling has pushed the industry forward and established him as one of the most distinctive filmmakers of his generation,” said Netflix’s head of anime programming, John Derderian. “We are beyond excited to partner with him and his exceptional team to bring the iconic characters and stories of Norse mythology to life in his inimitable style.”
No release date has been given.
